APPRECIATION POST

Last week, the actress shared an inspirational post to her IG feed about being more involved in the growth journey of those around her.

“There’s no way that we can possibly know everything that goes on in someone’s mind and heart and what they’re working towards, so why don’t we ask more questions and follow along with them in their growth journey?” she wrote.

“This is something I’ve been working on lately, asking the people closest to me deeper questions to learn who they are TODAY instead of assuming I know the answer or their course of action based on history.”

Shortly before, she uploaded a video centered around the well-being affirmations she says to herself.
